Second Annual Comer School Nurses Continuing Education Day

August 6, 2021
This activity will provide updates to school nurses and other clinicians to prepare for the start of the school year. Especially with the past year being so heavily focused on COVID-19, nurses need to be prepared for new school criteria and restrictions that align with the best interests of their students. This activity will include case-based discussions on topics vital to the success of school nurses and offer insight into a variety of experiences a school nurse or clinician will encounter. It will also showcase the latest information by experts in the field so participants can provide the highest level of care to the unique population they serve.

 This activity is generously sponsored by the Sunshine Charitable Foundation.
